What Our Clients Are Saying

“Diane and her team (particularly Lidia Saavedra) were an unmeasurable help when my 15 y.o. child was experiencing severe physiological stress which was causing dire consequences for her school life. Negotiating PPS’s process alone seemed confusing, and more or less opaque, which is a terrible place to be with one’s child’s welfare in the balance. With the help of Diane and her team, we were able to put together a plan for my child that was extremely helpful at a very difficult time. The legal support was thorough, detailed, understandable and effective. The advocacy was assertive and confident, but never confrontational. I recommend these folks strongly. And my child is doing well now I am relieved to add.”

“Thank you for everything you have done for us this past year. It has been a great school year for my son and it has been really terrific to see the progress he has made academically and socially. I know he would not be where he is if we had not had you to guide us and oversee what the teacher/district are doing.”

If you don’t believe in miracles as soon as you retain Diane, you will! She gave my family hope when we lost all. We were in desperate need of educational support for our son whom went from an A-B student to failing within 1 year. We were in constant communication with the school and doing our part at home, yet there was no change. The school said we’ve exhausted all supports we qualified for, and expected us to take their word. We were unaware of all the legal requirements schools have to adhere to until we retained Diane. Diane was always professional in every meeting, yet stern and ALWAYS spoke with a purpose. The second we retained her we saw a change in our sons support he was receiving, which increased his academic achievements. We’re proud to say our son is graduating high school this year and that accomplishment is in part of her advocacy. If you’re at the point of exhaustion and feel like there is no hope, she will give that to you in your first initial visit. When you think of your children their education is the best investment you can provide for their future. Diane was the best investment we made!”

“Throughout the process we came to admire and respect Diane’s strict adherence to an ethical practice. She diligently worked toward our benefit throughout the whole experience.”

“Thank you again for your hard work for us and for all the families you help.”

Lidia, I just wanted to take the time to thank you for how hard you work for [my son]. I feel so lucky to have found such a [great] advocate. You’re so knowledgeable and have no problem saying what you need to say. I thank you for asking me the hard questions, because it’s good to consider all aspects, especially the ones I don’t even think about. I know it’s your job, but you really put your heart into it and that’s why you’re AWESOME. Have a great weekend.
